MILFORD Haven Amateur Operatic Society is dusting off its rifles for a wild run at the Torch Theatre.

A colourful cast takes to the stage tonight (Monday, March 5) kicking off a six-night run of Annie Get Your Gun.

Presented by arrangement with Rodgers and Hammerstein, with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, the plot follows Annie Oakley - a poor, but spirited and happy country girl, who lives by her native ways.

Sharp shooting quickly makes her the star of 'Buffalo Bill's WildWest Show', where she meets and falls in love with expert rifleman Frank Butler.

Unfortunately, the tough, outspoken Annie is not Frank's idea of what a wife should be, and the two remain at competitive odds.

Annie is initiated into an Indian tribe, whose chief, Sitting Bull, gives her some good advice; only by deliberately - but discreetly - losing a shooting contest, can she win Frank.

But will she feign a poor shot to capture his heart?

Milford Haven Amateur Operatic Society was formed in 1950 with its debut production of HMS Pinafore.

The Torch Theatre has been its home for the last 37 years.

Performances run until Saturday, March 10. shows at 7.30pm.

Tickets £12, or £10 concession on Monday and Tuesday.
